Achieving Maximum Efficiency and Precision in Motor Control with Xilinx FPGAs

High demands are being placed on motors used for industrial automation, consumer electronics, medical diagnostics and robotics. Xilinx FPGAs deliver the performance and integration required to execute complex motor control algorithms, increased efficiency, integration and custom safety features— often outside of the capabilities of traditional MCUs. This webcast introduces the trends and challenges seen by designers and how new solutions from Xilinx and its Alliance Program partners enable solutions to meet stringent industry design goals. The discussion will include an overview of new IP in Sensorless Field Oriented Control as well as a new hardware development platform for rapid prototyping.

Ralph Bergmann, Technical Marketing Manager, Xilinx

Ralph Bergmann is a Technical Marketing Manager at Xilinx, responsible for Industrial Automation with a focus on motor control and industrial networking platforms and solutions. Ralph has over 27 years of experience in the semiconductor industry, starting off as an applications engineer, and has gained broad knowledge of ASICs and FPGAs through past roles at Texas Instruments, IBM and Xilinx.

Matthew Brown, Global Technical Marketing Manager for DSP applications, Avnet

Matthew Brown has a multifaceted background in video, image and digital signal processing. His career started 15 years ago at Motorola designing digital hardware for Iridium - the world's first (and most expensive) hand held satellite phone. Since then he's been a Semiconductor Field Applications Engineer consulting on leading edge designs for wireless base stations, video surveillance, broadcast video and military widgets he's not allowed to talk about. Today at Avnet Electronics he is a Global Technical Marketing Manager for DSP applications, with a focus on Xilinx® FPGAs. Model-based design for FPGAs using MathWorks® software has been an ongoing area of study and experimentation. He is also a frequent author and speaker for DSP and FPGA related seminars in North America and internationally.
